I have been working with teachers since the mid-1980s on infusing instruction in critical and creative thinking into content instruction, first across the USA, now worldwide. I've written many articles about this, as well as some books, including Infusing Critical and Creative Thinking into Elementary Instruction, the same for Secondary Science, and a recent book, Thinking-Based Learning, with four others in this field.
